Hello i have been trying all day to get emails to work and I am totally lost.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE could some one help me.
I have set up a domain which is my own name rickyspires.co.uk and i would like to have an email address for that domain like mail@ or info@.
I have set up the domain and that all works. My droplet is called spangler1 and my login name has changed from root to rickyspires.
This is what i have tried.
I have followed this tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdio_MMNqUE
First login to the server rickyspires@spangler1:
install postfix sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install postfix
myhostname = rickyspires.co.uk virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases mydestination = rickyspires.co.uk, spangler1, ricky-spiress-MacBook-Pro.local, localhost relayhost = mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8 10.0.0.0/8 mailbox_size_limit = 0 recipient_delimiter = + inet_interfaces = all
sudo service postfix restart
mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
501 5.5.4 Syntax: MAIL FROM:<address>
!!! I GET AN ERROR HERE - the error wasnt there before ? But even when i didnt get the error at this point the emails would not send.
I get this… for example
